Thread: Older Onan

  1. #1

    Older Onan

    Hello, I have an older Onan 50AMP at 220V generator. The gear that drives the points on the engine has broken teeth. The points were made by FairBank Morris. Can anyone tell me if or how to get parts. I have searched the web etc, but have no hits. I am thinking about welding new teeth on, but am worried it won’t be as strong as the original.

    Thanks
    Iggy

    it wont be as strong as thr original.... the gear and teeth after machining are then case hardened for strength and durability... stop looking on-line for these parts, and find an old electric motor repair house (they usually all will have a few older onan engines around for parts....trust me) and if you cant find what you need there, then off you go to the Cummins big truck engine dealer.... dodge cant help you.... you gotta go to the big truck cummins place....

    they own onan and have owned them for a long time.... you will be surprised at the amount of parts that are still in production. however, they dont inventory online, therefore, you wont be able to find those rare parts..... online......

    cummins bought out onan years ago.... (one of the reasons why onan has lost out in popularity in the small engine world... cummins has run onan into the dirt) however, thats what you will have to do to find parts for one
